Video: Proton S70 Review – Not Perfect, But Still a Fantastic Sedan

Here’s our review of the Proton S70! The C-segment sedan has a lot of things to offer, but it also falls shorts in certain aspects. But if you want the most value for your money, the S70 is one of the best options in the sub-RM100,000 price range.

To recap, four variants of the S70 are offered: Executive, Premium, Flagship, and Flagship X. Regardless of which S70 model you get, they are all powered by the same 1.5L turbo engine that produces 150PS and 226Nm of torque paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. As for safety, all variants get six airbags, but only the Flagship and Flagship X models are equipped with ADAS.

Speaking of which, the S70’s ADAS is very similar to the X90‘s, albeit with the omission of Auto Park Assist (APA) and Emergency Lane Keep Assist (ELKA). That being said, this is still a very sophisticated ADAS, especially for a C-segment sedan. Not only does it have 12 different sensors, it also supports Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Centering Control, Lane Change Assist, and even Traffic Sign Information.

Pricing wise, the Proton S70 retails from RM73,800 for the Executive model, going up to RM79,800 for the Premium trim. The Flagship and Flagship X variants, on the other hand, are priced at RM89,800 and RM94,800 respectively. If you’d like to learn more about the S70, check out our full video review above!
